However according to the Daily Mail, Tottenham director Daniel Levy was so impressed with Van Gaal when meeting the Netherlands boss last week that he could offer him a role in the summer.

Whether Van Gaal takes over as head coach, or goes into an advisory role will depend on how Sherwood does in the role between now and the end of the season.

Van Gaal will leave his post as Netherlands boss after the World Cup in Brazil next summer, and is keen to get back into club football management. The 62-year-old former Bayern Munich, Ajax, and Barcelona coach is said to favour a position in the Premier League having never managed in England before.
